Hmm, a bit sad to me (bootstrapping issues, you need to have cmake installed to build libzip now). Also, e.g. Fedora/RHEL packaging of libzip historically depends on autoconf's ./configure (and it would surprise if any other GNU/Linux distro did differently). This could trigger a lot of work on packager's side. So I would prefer keeping only autoconf if I had to make the decision, but I understand you... Thanks for your work, Pavel
